  • Beautiful gardens of this castle unfortunately disappeared. For lovers or lovers! Small bar for refreshment and adjoining shop.

  • Very nice ride in beautiful terraced gardens well maintained. You can discover beautiful collections of plants (such as fig trees, mint...). It's a shame that the original castle was destroyed in 1948. It remains only the very beautiful cave Chapel. On the other hand we can discover through old photos exhibited in the Park the magnificence of the Castle formerly.

  • Beautiful garden! some parts of the Park make think of gardens in Italy: it is very marked. Garden to him alone is worth the visit, and to the wire of the promenade there are a lot of very pleasant surprises. The owner is almost impossible to find plant collection: she practices exchanges of seeds with a large Conservatory of plants located in Russia. The young gardener has a remarkable knowledge of gardening.
